Toned Down Morange FOTD

I bought Mac Morange on a whim recently, and it is the brightest, boldest color I personally own. I absolutely love it but on me, it looks awful without a lipgloss on top to tone it down a tiny bit. My lips are still a vibrant orange, but not as neon! Here's a realllly simple (hopefully not too boring) neutral look I did to pair with it. I just started piling different warm, brown neutrals on my lid, and blended well hoping it would look alright in the end! lol

Left side Nars kalahari on lid, Mac Soba in crease, Urban Decay Darkhorse in outer crease, Mac Handwritten in Outer-V, Mac femme fi to highlight
